Early this morning, around 7.30, I was holding Evelyn. In her random flailings, she hit me in the eye. I’m now quite sure that she has scratched my eyeball. It’s nearly 1pm now, and it still hurts. Mostly it’s bearable, but every few minutes – perhaps when I’ve blinked too much, or something – it becomes excrutiating. It waters, which makes my nose run, which means I now feel like I’ve been weeping all day.
I had intended to brave the cold and go shopping today, but I don’t fancy battling the shopping centre with blurred vision and intermittent weeping. So I’m a homebody, and I just have to hope this gets better quickly. It is very annoying!
